“Fantastic. My experience at Sant’ Anna from start to finish was amazing. It is a very special place and I was honored to stay there. I look forward to my next visit!”

Creative Excursions provides our guests with the convenience and benefits of organized group travel with the freedom and opportunities of individualized adventure. Our intimate groups (10—16) are created with your comfort, interests and creativity in mind.

We recognize that travelling provides the ideal time to relax and experience new things including different cultures, foods, landscapes, and sights. We feel it is essential for our guests to have time to explore, reflect and respond to their experiences during their excursions to intensify these experiences creating powerful and enduring memories.

The object of pilgrimage is not rest and recreation – to get away from it all. To set out on a pilgrimage is to throw down a challenge to everyday life. Nothing matters now but this adventure.
—Huston Smith.

We also recognize that travel provides an ideal time to learn new things about ourselves and how we see the world. It is a great time to delve into and deepen our creative process.  It is a wonderful time to learn, create and connect.

Pilgrimage is the kind of journeying that marks just this move from mindless to mindful, soulless to soulful travel. The difference may be subtle or dramatic; by definition it is life-changing.
—Phil Cousineau.

We hope you’ll join us and create your own transformative travel adventure!
